Saying no one wants to watch Askren is essentially saying YOU don`t like him. Numbers don`t lie, and Askren has the background to draw bigger numbers than most of the roster.
Among hardcore fans Askren may never be a favorite. Among the general public Askren could draw more than most of the roster.
Ok there are just too many bullshit in your post, so I've got to comment.
First of regarding hardcore fans: hardcore fans are more likely to watch unknown prospects and "technical fighters" than casual fans, who care mostly about knockouts. Therefore, if the hardcore fans on Sherdog don't care much for Askren, there is not a chance the casual fans would give a damn about Askren.
Second regarding the claim that Askren is a "big draw" hahahahaha!
If he's such a big draw, why did Bellator let him go?
